CDTA: On The Cutting Edge With Distance Learning
The California Desert Trial Academy (CDTA) brings legal education home. We’re on the cutting edge of modern, progressive 21st Century legal education. The use of distance learning in legal education is rapidly increasing. While many law schools have been slow to incorporate distance learning into their curriculums, the CDTA has implemented new, innovative ways of teaching students how to be attorney advocates.
Not everyone can change their normal routine to attend law school on a regular basis. This is especially true when you consider that traditional law schools require your attendance for most of the day. Distance learning helps those who cannot make a commitment to a regular schedule. CDTA uses modern technology to offer unique educational tools to students.
With the Zoom Video Conferencing Application available at the CDTA Student Portal, students can stream classes online. This technology also provides students with the chance for live interaction with professors and peers. This is an example of how CDTA allows students to utilize distance learning to earn a law degree at their convenience. The CDTA Student Portal gives students access to recorded live classes 24 hours a day, seven (7) days a week.
Because distance learning makes attendance less demanding and time-consuming, it can potentially expand the pool of individuals who would consider earning a law degree. At the CDTA, we schedule classes and other curriculum-based activities based on the fact that many students have other important responsibilities related to family and employment.
Because of these responsibilities, not every student may have the time to commute to and from school each day and attend several hours of class on a regular basis. Distance learning helps these students fill in the gaps and do what otherwise may not have been possible at a traditional law school.
The ability to connect with students in the digital age and supplement classroom learning through the internet is an immensely valuable tool. At the California Desert Trial Academy, we are continuously seeking ways to better utilize online resources for the benefit of CDTA’s growing student body.
The California Desert Trial Academy was founded with a progressive vision of legal education. This vision includes the maximum utilization of technology to help students achieve their professional goals. At CDTA, we offer online legal resources that provide convenience, repetition, and hands-on training 24 hours a day, seven days a week. At CDTA, we train, educate, and develop students to be exceptional attorneys and trial advocates. Call us today at (760) 342-0900 or find out more online here.
